David Avgi’s new payments startup UNIPaaS raises $10 million seed round
After selling SafeCharge for $890 million, Avgi’s new company is tackling payments for Digital Marketplaces and B2B enterprises
The new company, which was founded in 2020 by Avgi, who serves as its CEO, Oded Kovach (CTO) and Limor Liberman (COO), develops a solution designed for Digital Marketplaces and B2B SaaS platforms to offer their own payment experience. Since its inception, UNIPaaS has obtained the cards scheme PCI Level 1 certification, received the UK FCA Authorised Payment Institute license, and started onboarding customers.
“We are transforming how businesses integrate and handle payments,” Avgi said. “The experience gained in over twenty years in the payments industry has led the UNIPaaS team to tackle what we believe is one of the most acute issues facing B2B platforms, especially multi-vendor ones. Digital marketplaces and B2B platforms wish to own their payment experience without the burden of developing additional tech stacks and operations or deal with regulation and licensing.”“We were struck by UNIPaaS vision and how big the market it addresses can be,” said Dekel Persi, General Partner at TPY Capital, who, with Guy Yamen, joined the UNIPaaS Board. “We were also impressed by David Avgi’s ability to recruit top talent as well as with the progress this team has made before raising any external capital. David’s people-driven leadership and significant personal investment in the round made it obvious to us as a fund that we have found a leader with a rare combination of vision, commitment, and execution skills.”
